Just Hot Air,
This review is from: The Secret (Hardcover)
I agree with most of the high rating reviews, the book is a good reminder of already available materials around self motivations.
The promise of the book is highly exaggerated, the materials is not new; in fact you will come across it one way or another in most self development books. I just found it very commercial and the whole fiasco of the name and the way marketed is misleading and exaggerated for what actually can provide.
For example, it mentions "it's scientifically proven that a positive thought, 100s times more powerful [Electronically/plus strength] than a negative thought". Now, I can tell you that there are no researches or any scientific fact currently available which support this statement.
In a nutshell: Strong marketing techniques, positive thinking and goal setting contents. All blended together then exaggerated.
Not recommended by me.
